Oh man that sucks a lot. Did he try a hit and run or was he around for you to get his insurance info?

Good luck getting things all squared away... make sure ot get the work done at a shop you trust to do a quality job!

Man that sucks, sorry to hear. And an 05 too, glad everyone was ok. So I take it that it is repairable damage?

well thankfully all his tires blew when hewas doing a 360 so he couldnt go anywhere.... and he was at fauly because he was speeding into me and i guess i was already more than half in the lane so it was his fault

AND THE DAMAGE: Front Right panel and bumper plus front right wheel...plus alignment

All in all i am glad to still be alive but i am really depressed

so wait . . . you failed to pay attention and wait for faster moving traffic to pass in a lane you were merging into and claim that it's his fault because he was speeding?

sorry, but unless a cop was sitting there with a radar gun on the explorer as it hit you, you're at fault for that accident. last time i checked our vision didn't come equipped with speedo lasers that will register in mph

the driver was probably tired of idiots not checking your blind spots and since his car was bigger just ruined your shit to make an impression. i totaled a brand new gti with my 93 explorer - pushed the hatch all the way up to the back of his drivers seat - he pulled right out in front of me puttering along more in a 50 mph speed limit so i just lightly hit the brakes and let my SUV go to work on him. best part is we got out and he looked at my front end and said "boy those built ford tough commercials weren't kidding" all i had was cracked plastic on my grill, and not even enough for it to be noticible unless you were looking at it from less than a foot away. guy learned his lesson, cop wrote him a ticket, he paid his deductible and his insurance company paid mine. hopefully he learns to watch what he's doing or at least step on the gas once he decides to do it.
